Facilitating Groupwork in Online ClassesOne of the lesser-known facts about online courses is that student connections and camaraderie are easily developed in virtual environments. Blackboard offers several platforms that foster student collaboration and group projects, and effective use of discussion boards can create a classroom vibe that is more connected and supportive than many face-to-face classes. This workshop will showcase how to design group work assignments using the tools available in Blackboard, and highlight some best practices in facilitating meaningful and effective discussions in online learning environments.
